Analysis of restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in a population of Leptothorax acervorum demonstrates substantial population substructuring. Digestion with four restriction endonucleases, HaeIII, MboI, MspI and RsaI, gave six, four, three and two different patterns, respectively. Seven composite haplotypes were(More)
There is high within-nest relatedness for functional queens (with corpora lutea), nonfunctional queens (without corpora lutea), and workers in polygynous nests of Leptothorax acervorum. The high functional queen relatedness suggests that young mated queens are adopted back to their mother nest. Functional queen relatedness does not change with the number of(More)
27 nests ofLeptothorax acervorum were analysed for restriction fragment-length polymorphism (RFLP) in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), using four endonucleases. A substantial degree of variation was found between nests in the population (13 composite haplotypes). Intra-nest variation was detected in 15 % of the nests. The presence of occasional alien inseminated(More)
